Front Bumper Cover Removal
Because I had heard it was so "easy" to remove the front cover, I tried it on Sunday and did not get very far. When you remove the black bumper guards there are these black plastic grommets that push through the cover to the bumper behind it. I could not get these plastic grommets out to save me. I tried all kinds of tools, including the grommet tool that is specifically built to remove these.
There has to be at least 8 of these plastic grommets holding on the bumper cover. How do you remove them?
